Tell me about your craft, Bella.
Over the years I've worked as a Photographer’s Assistant, Photographic Printer/Developer/Editor, Photographic Salesperson, Professional Model (Catwalk and TV) and also the Fashion Industry selling clothes.

I first picked up a camera when I was 7 years old. I always knew, even right back then, what kind of photos I wanted to take in the future-Beauty and Fashion.  I got my first camera in a Barbie Show-Bag at the Royal Adelaide Show (1984). It was plastic, pink, and smelt funny. But I fell in love with it straight away, and so it began.

I come from an artistic family, who all happen to take photos too! We are never short of cameras or shoot ideas!

I will be heading overseas asap to try and work and collaborate with different people in the arts and fashion industry. I look forward to the possibilities the future brings.

What is your favorite thing to do in the whole wide world?
Traipse through old photographs from good times gone- smile, laugh, cry, reminisce.

What is your biggest challenge when it comes to running your business?
Knowing what you are worth!

Also arguing with people about what you charge and why....pisses me off no end!!!

When you were a kid, what did you think you were going to be when you grew up?
I wanted to Model, Act, and be a Photographer!!!

What item in your collection would you like to receive as a gift if someone were shopping for you?
Hmmm...good question...probably this or this.

What other artists out there do you love?
WAY too many. But I'll give you a few of my favourites:

Dorina Costras
Laëtitia Guilbaud
Tanya Rochat
Patricia Ariel

What does your future hold?
Happiness, Fun, Success and lots of travelling the world!!!!
